The week in review.

We kicked things off on Monday with news about our involvement in the UN Climate Action Summit, from RYOT’s AR projection at the UN General Assembly to Hans’ BUILD Series interview about how business leaders can set aggressive goals on climate action.  Yahoo also released a new version of its Mail app. Check out more details here

Tuesday was our big awards show. We announced the iPhone 11 winners, shared news of Verizon Media’s voter info hub for the 2020 election, and saw how 5G helped power TV’s biggest awards ceremony.

On Wednesday, Andy, Kacie, and Erin got you up to speed on 2020 Open Enrollment and employee benefits.

Then on Thursday, 5G touched down in Boise, ID, Panama City, FL, and New York. We brought you around the boroughs to show you how and where 5G will make a difference in NYC.

And today, we closed out with a special addition to the Up to Speed family. Watch the episode to find out.
